Singer Bebe Cool today had a successful meeting as a panelist at the African Regional TB Summit in Kigali, Rwanda. The singer shared practical solutions on how Uganda and the rest of other African countries can find missing people with TB. Bebe Cool described the summit as total success.
“This morning I had a successful meeting as a panelist at the AFRICAN REGIONAL TB SUMMIT in Kigali – Rwanda together with Executive Director Stop TB partnership Ms.Lucica Ditiu, Ms.Marijke Wijnroks of Global Fund, Mr. Rogero Cumbane a TB survivor and Brain Flo an artist and TB Ambassador from Zambia where I shared practical solutions on how Uganda and the rest of other African countries can ‘Find Missing People with TB’.
I deliberated that by tagging a health agenda I.e testing/screening for TB for every person who attends presidential and Parliamentary campaign rallies can help in reaching many people in the StopTB campaign.
The whole idea is to take the hospital to the patient rather than patient looking for the hospital. I also emphasized on decrease of bureaucracy when it comes to funding and executing what has been agreed upon.
I pointed out that there is need to engage more African celebrities and noise makers to create more awareness and engagement about TB just like it was the case with HIV- AIDS. I believe these are executable ideas and the fact that the rate of TB infections has surpassed that of HIV-AIDS we need to act now. #ItstimetoEndTB #EndTB But then again am Bebe Cool,” Bebe posted.
